CHICAGO (WLS) -- The new year means New Year's resolutions.

So how can you set reasonable resolutions?

Dr. Mark Loafman is chair of family and community medicine for Cook County Health, and he joined ABC7 Chicago Monday to talk about setting goals.

Loafman said it starts with realistic resolutions - start small with an achievable goal and escalate over time.

He said despite the seemingly never-ending pandemic, there is a lot to celebrate because so much progress has been made.

Even if you can't go to the gym, Loafman said, find some small ways to be active, eat well and get sleep.
